Mexican beef tongue recipe. an easy recipe of tongue in tomato sauce to serve as a main dish or to prepare tacos.
This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Rumba Meats and #WeAllGrow Latino Network #SabordelFutbol
The party of football is about to start and to celebrate the Latinos we paint ourselves, this time the matches will be early, so I prepared beef language to the Mexican, to adapt a little our celebrations.
Pot luck parties are very common in these meetings and in my case we will celebrate my favorite team, which of course is Mexico; so food and decorations have to reflect our Mexican heritage.
As hostess I like to offer a strong dish to my guests, that’s why I chose the tongue of beef to the Mexican, this recipe is a typical Mexican lunch and is served either on a plate or in tacos.
I made it with Rumba Meats beef language, which I bought at Kroger; I have cooked several dishes with beef of this brand and I can tell you that the meat is high quality and can be frozen easily.
The tongue takes about two and a half to three hours to the stove, but I normally prepare it in the slow cooker crockpot overnight and in the morning is ready. (Now the Instant Pot is very fashionable, you can also make it there)
Cow tongue or beef tongue taste similiar to other beef cuts. You have to clean, cook and peel the tongue before eating it.
Rumba Meats offers specialized ingredients that allow me to share my Hispanic heritage by cooking traditional dishes.
What I like about supermarkets like Kroger is that in a single lap you can get everything you need for your meetings, in this case for the football party or soccer watch like:
- Rumba Meats Meat
- Vegetables and fruit
- Plates, napkins, cutlery and disposable cups
- Soft drinks
- Bottles of water
I share the recipe of Mexican beef language, stew, an option for your football parties, I hope you enjoy it! Czech also my tongue recipe in pasilla chili sauce.
